The Amerind Museum presents the Eleventh Annual Texas Canyon Trail Run on Saturday, March 23, 2024. Bring your friends and family to run or walk the scenic 5K or 10K courses in this awe-inspiring region the Texas Canyon Nature Preserve. Texas Canyon is marked by spectacular rock formations, including balancing boulders, spiers, and trails crisscrossing through open fields of yucca, ocotillo, a variety of cacti, and scattered trees that dot the terrain.

In a culture of running, it is no surprise that many Native communities have ways of encouraging runners along their path. Among the O’odham of Arizona and Sonora, singing is important at all community events and celebrations. The Amerind is honored to welcome back the Nolik Singers from the Tohono O’odham Nation. On March 23, they will sing traditional O’odham songs to encourage the trail runners along their way.

Once you have completed the race, please stay for the Awards Ceremony at 11:00 am. In addition to their medals, the overall winners of the 5K and 10K will receive a beautiful piece of Native American art. After the awards ceremony, grab a bite to eat from our food vendors. Then, step inside and explore Amerind’s exhibits. Your race registration also includes free entry into the Amerind Museum and Art Gallery. Simply show your bib number or guest passes to the admissions desk to take advantage of this offer.
